association with tea party candidates and in part because she was such a surprise winner and tell us a little bit about what you think about her and what the buzz is there about her. >> well, i think there's another part to it and that is that she was attacked by republicans. the republican establishment and i think when you put all of that into the mix, that has raised her profile beyond anything that it would have been on its own. the fact that she upset a 40-year political veteran who was a liberal republican and that the establishment had backed him and then when she wins, they get mad and attack her. so, that makes the mix, given this tea party background of kind of anti-incumbent, it's a pretty powerful mix. >> and i'm also interested because the first thing you said is that she was attacked by the party establishment. we heard it from the state gop chairman, we heard it from karl rove who called her nutty and it does sort of point to what is seen as this great divide within the republican party and a lot of people questioning whether that's going to serve conservative views long term.
